Christie Brinkley mentions a fellow passenger referring to a Chinese airline accident; this was China Airlines Flight 006 on February 19, in which a Boeing 747 rolled over and plunged 30,000 feet in two and a half minutes (including several seconds in which the plane was almost in a direct downward dive) after an engine failure at cruising altitude on a flight from Taipei to Los Angeles, before the pilot was able to recover control and make an emergency landing in San Francisco.

Robert Blake: I do not like to travel. I don't like to go to hotels and get on the 20th floor, and sit there like a pigeon looking out the window, and sleep in a box. I don't like elevators. Whenever I get near an elevator, I'm going in it to go up to see somebody in a suit - and I don't like that. It's a lawyer, or it's some general that you go - you don't get in an elevator to go see your girlfriend or to go fishing or to have a good time.
